Requests and proposals Steward requests (Miscellaneous) Archives
This page is for Wikimedia wikis having no active administrators. Requests can be made here for specific administrative actions (such as page deletion) to be performed by a steward or global sysop. In other cases:
  • If the wiki does have active administrators, file the request with one of them.
  • If the wiki has an active editor community, any potentially controversial action (deletion of actual content, edit to a protected page, renaming of a protected page, etc.) should receive consensus from the wiki community before being requested here, and a link should be provided to that consensus in the request.
  • For global lock/block requests, file a request at Steward requests/Global.

To add a new request, create a new section header at the bottom of this page (but above the See also section) using the format below:

=== Very brief description of request here ===
{{Status|In progress}}
Give details about your request here. --~~~~

It is helpful if you can provide a link to the wiki (or the specific page on the wiki) in question, either in the header or in the body of your request.

When reporting cross-wiki vandalism, the following template calls can be used to link to a user's contributions across all Wikimedia content wikis (these are for logged in users and non-logged-in users, respectively):

* {{sultool|Username}}

* {{luxotool|IP.address}}

Template {{LockHide}} can also be used in appropriate cases.

To request approval of OAuth consumers please use {{oauthapprequest}} (see the documentation before using).

Old requests are archived by the date of their last comment.

Manual requestsEdit

Please see a list of pages nominated for speedy deletion via {{Delete}} and/or the local equivalent. You can also filter by wikis whose admins are less than X or have not delete since Y.

Copyrighted works on the Esperanto WikisourceEdit

Status:    On hold

The works of Kazimierz Bein (Kabe) are not yet in public domain. The author died in 1959. The pages should be deleted now and undeleted in 10 years. There is no active community on this wiki and there are no admins.

Pages containing copyrighted material:

@Robin van der Vliet: As these works have been there for years (2012), they should at least have the semblance of a deletion discussion with whatever community may be there, and for at least a month so allowing suitable opportunity for comment. Though it will be a forlorn hope, please ping the contributor.  — billinghurst sDrewth 15:34, 31 January 2019 (UTC)
I informed the creator of most of those pages here, but I don't really see what we should discuss. The pages constitute a clear copyright violation. Robin van der Vliet (talk) (contribs) 15:42, 31 January 2019 (UTC)
They have been there six years, waiting through a discussion is not problematic. The community should be given the right to have that discussion. It allows a local record to exist for others to see, it educates, it informs and allows a community to be a community. It allows a local permalink to be used on any deletion, and a clear authority for people to act to delete. What is so urgent or imperative that a discussion cannot be held.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:10, 31 January 2019 (UTC)
Also noting that some of the works have been added by Frglz (talk · contribs), so please ping them in the discussion. Thanks..  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:13, 31 January 2019 (UTC)
I also pinged them in the discussion. For me personally it's not a problem to wait, I am just accustomed to how copyvios work on Commons. When I nominate something there, it gets deleted in an instant without any discussion, that's why I was surprised when you said "at least a month". Robin van der Vliet (talk) (contribs) 02:15, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
I moved the discussion to this page, because there are a lot more copyrighted works stored on the Esperanto Wikisource than I first noticed. I linked all I could find in that new page. Robin van der Vliet (talk) (contribs) 13:34, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. Wikisources work differently to Commons, especially in sporadic editing. I am also unsure exactly the copyright rules they apply, it may not be Commons rules. Being pre-1923 works, if eoWS are working only to US copyright alone, they will not be copyright violations. This is why the community conversation should be taking place by those who know the local rules, rather than applying another wiki's rules.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:40, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
If they require the texts to be PD also in the first publication country, the texts should be moved do Multilingual Wikisource before deletion. Ankry (talk) 14:01, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
  • What is the status of this request? I am ready to import files to oldwikisource, but I will not do that if their deletion is not due or if it is not to be performed soon (to avoid duplication). Ankry (talk) 06:25, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

Cross-wiki vandalsEdit

Status:    In progress

On the advice of @Tomybrz:, it's enough to have my user pages & my talk user pages being vandalized because i'm a sysop on the french WP. I'm looking for where asking in one go the definitive Extended confirmed protection for all my pages on all projects. Thx for answering. OT38 (talk) 17:15, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Note for information : I talk with Billinghurst on irc, and he tell me to "get them to leave a note on my user talk page, I already have the bones of such a filter". Regards Tomybrz Bip Bip 17:22, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
There is no such thing as "extended confirmed protection". Ruslik (talk) 20:39, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
It exists only on the English Wikipedia. Vermont (talk) 22:36, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

  Comment @OT38: As the conversation is here, let us continue it here. It sets some general conversation about similar cases, and looks to manage some of the precedence. As has been mentioned, we can write global abuse filters, though they do not cover the large wikis (frWP and enWS are different as they accepted global filters), and this can cover a range of actions from creation and editing with the flexibility of the components of abusefilters. That said we don't want to get overly complicated in the schema, it does allow us to utilise it for numerous cases of xwiki abuse and harassment.

We can do something like where page does not exist, do not allow non-autoconfirmed users to create a page. We can go stronger and apply for all wikis and write the pages into title blacklist and use the <autoconfirmed> though that becomes a very big and unwieldy stick with little in the way of finesse.

This could become a can of worms and setting a lot of global work if many people started requesting it. So this could be something that may involve SPoore's anti-harassment project as a more holistic response to such problems.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:20, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

billinghurst, letting you know that I saw your comment. Do you know if anyone has started a phabricator ticket describing the problem we're trying to solve and possible solutions? If not, we need to that to get it on the record. SPoore (WMF) Strategist, Community health initiative (talk) 15:20, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
@SPoore (WMF): probably not been put into a phabricator ticket. When I have some time ...  — billinghurst sDrewth 21:24, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
@SPoore (WMF) and Billinghurst: This night my user page & my talk user page has been vandalized 85 times on 30 different projects. Besides ignoring it, what can I do now ? OT38 (talk) 04:06, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
For now a global title blacklist that prevents non-autoconfirmed users from creating your user and user talk pages may be a solution (for the ones already created and you don't need, you may request to have them deleted too). This might be hard to do because the cross-language namespace could be tricky. -★- PlyrStar93 Message me. 04:42, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
@PlyrStar93: Where a global title blacklist can be requested ? Can this title blacklist be applied on user talk pages too ? OT38 (talk) 05:11, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
Request at Talk:Title blacklist. The syntax I can think of would be something like .*:OT38 <autoconfirmed> to catch language variations on namespaces (including user and user talk namespaces) and the page name without namespace to be exactly "OT38" so there won't be much overkill. Existing pages can still be edited, but non-autoconfirmed users will not be able to create new page. -★- PlyrStar93 Message me. 05:17, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

@OT38: I am going to hasten slowly on this construction if we are utilising title blacklist. This addition will stop editing and creation by non-autoconfirmed. If we have the issue on so many wikis, and you have existing user or user talk pages, then we need to manage those as well. Now, as I have hard-coded user/user talk, I am pretty certain that it will only function on default English language wikis, though let us test it for function prior to expanding. I do wish to minimise possible negative consequences of that big ugly stick.  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:07, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: Thx a lot for the time you give to my request. OT38 (talk) 19:53, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
The magic word hasn't worked. Page creation by new users is still happening. Not sure if it's because the conversion only happens at Meta so page names in other wikis will have to match the converted result at Meta. -★- PlyrStar93 Message me. 15:42, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

css request for yi.wikipediaEdit

Status:    In progress

MediaWiki:common.css at Yi.wikipedia needs some modification so that references can be given non-numerical tags. Something like (but not sure whether this will actually do the job)

/* Make the list of references smaller */

/* Keep in sync with Template:Refbegin/styles.css */

ol.references,

div.reflist {

font-size: 90%; /* Default font-size */

margin-bottom: 0.5em;

}

div.reflist ol.references {

font-size: 100%; /* Reset font-size when nested in div.reflist */

margin-bottom: 0; /* Avoid double margin when nested in div.reflist */

list-style-type: inherit; /* Enable custom list style types */

} --פוילישער (talk) 11:03, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

@פוילישער: is there a consensus in the community for this? Discussion somewhere as reference?  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:08, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
As I said, I do not even know whether this will work. But there is a problem which needs to be addressed. Preferably someone with the technical knowledge should advise. --פוילישער (talk) 13:13, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

Image cleanup on is.wikisourceEdit

Status:    In progress

Local discussion: is:s:Wikiheimild:Potturinn#Færa_myndir_á_Commons, is:s:User talk:Aris4444‎, is:s:User talk:Óli Gneisti‎

Please delete the following images from is.wikisource. They are all on Wikimedia Commons.

I have filed an proposal on the local village pump and on the user pages of all uploaders, which are only two in this case. No opposes where made in any of these three discussions during the two weeks that have passed since I posted them.

The files are all free and should be on Wikimedia Commons. I have allready uploaded those files who where not on Commons to Wikimedia Commons. I have made sure that all of the image links will still link to the correct image after the deletion. All of the files where uploaded to is.wikisource with limited or no information, but I have added information to some of the files.
